Course summary

  • Do you dream of a business career that takes you around the world?
  • Do you want to understand what it takes to engage with international markets?
  • Are you interested in how and why companies operate internationally?
As technology continues to close the gap between countries, international markets are within every company’s reach. Most businesses now have international operations, international consumers or compete internationally. Our International Business degree aims to prepare you for a career as a business leader, enabling you to develop the essential knowledge and skills to effectively navigate and operate in the international business and management environment. This four-year course includes an initial full-time Foundation Year and offers an alternative route into university and gaining a degree. This route is for you if you do not have the necessary qualifications or don’t yet feel ready to begin degree-level study, or are returning to education and would like some support to get up to speed with learning in a university setting. The Foundation Year in Business will allow you to develop your academic skills and confidence as well as introduce you to key concepts, debates and skills that will support and inform your subsequent years of undergraduate study. Following successful completion of your Foundation Year, you’ll progress onto Year 1 of our International Business BA (Hons) degree.
